A mainstay of the Chicago Drill scene for years, King Louie has a new album on Lawless Inc., Tony, and you can hear tracks from it on CHIRP Radio!
There's still time to join CHIRP at the Active Transportation Alliance Four Star Bike & Chow this Sunday, September 7!
You can choose from 12-, 22-, 43-, or 62-mile rides on Chicago's South Side. If you're not too comfortable riding in traffic, 12-mile riders can sign up for Safe City Cycling and learn how to ride safely in the streets.
Each rider also receives a punch card to redeem three delicious samples along their route. There will be vegetarian options at each stop. Some vendors include: Lou Malnati's, nana, Pierogi Wagon, New Furama, Phoenix, and more!
To top it off a post-ride festival will be held at Circle Memorial Grove on the UIC campus (Taylor & Morgan St.) Active Trans will keep an eye out for your bike with a free bike valet, so you can enjoy the music.
Cause, come on. We LOVE music!!

On September 8th, CHIRP brings a full bill to Subterranean. This smörgåsbord of tasty music is lead by the eclectic tunes of Part Time. Hailing from San Francisco, a city best known for psychedelic rock and costume parties, Part Time sounds like Rocky Horror Picture show went on vacation with the Talking Heads to Maui.
Just south on the 101 resides the Sea Lions who imbue their California surf pop with a dash of country. To keep things interesting local Johnny Whispers brings his insane show to the table. Rarely on stage, Johnny sings accompanying a computer programmed with pop and Casio keyboard elements—crowd surfing, rolling around, hiding in closets, and asking strangers to slow dance—in his memorable performance. Fellow Midwesterners Today’s Hits keep things mellow, real mellow, with their somber surf punk and will no doubt ease the crowd into a night of enjoyable music noshing.
For more info and ticket prices visit Subterranean and be sure and stop by the CHIRP table to bend our ear about this stellar line-up!
He may have been born in York, PA and spent some time in Virginia and North Carolina, but Robbie Fulks’ home is Chicago. He’s been a teacher at the Old Town School of Folk Music and worked with many Folk and Alt-Country musicians around town for decades. His latest record Gone Away Backward was released on Bloodshot records last year and is the 12th solo release for a man who has firmly established himself as a creative force who makes music that doesn’t fit into easy categories but will satisfy any roots music fan with an appetite for melody and humor.
Fulks returns to the Old Town School on Saturday, Sept. 6 for an 8:00pm show at the Gary and Laura Maurer Concert Hall, 4544 N Lincoln Ave. He’ll be joined by fellow life-traveler and self-proclaimed “Grammy Award-losing drummer” Gerald Dowd, who’s also collaborated with a whole lot of talented folks. You can buy tickets here. Come on down and get yourself an earful.
